Zuppa Theatre is an ensemble theatre company based in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The company is driven by a core group of artists (led by directors Ben Stone, Susan Leblanc and Alex McLean with associate artist Stewart Legere) and has developed a unique collaborative process that favours the intuitive over the formulaic, thriving on the play between the imagined and the real. Every Zuppa Theatre show is a ride through wild visions, genres, familiar stories and the unknown; the experiences, thoughts and inclinations of the artists and collaborators involved – whether writers, chefs, musicians, performers, designers – determines the landscape.
In residence in Torbay in autumn 2017, Zuppa Theatre will be working with IACF on a research project, “Vista” exploring the parallel worlds and intersections between the processes, systems and experience of health and environment. “Vista” will develop through an ongoing series of conversations and platforms in Halifax, Nova Scotia and Torbay, South Devon focusing on urban health and how we might better engage creativity within and across our social fabric.
If you would like to be involved or contribute to this ongoing project, please write to info [@] iacf-uk.org
“Vista” is a project generously supported through the Canada Council for the Arts.
